Netflix Announced ‘Terminator’ Anime Series with Production I.G

Netflix is gearing up for a new animated Terminator web series, and it shows that the streaming giant is looking forward to boosting up its anime game.

Just recently, Netflix announced that it’s releasing DOTA 2 video game-based Anime Series in March and now this. It seems like the streaming giant has vowed to capture the attention of the anime fan base. Anime shows like Castlevania and Dragon’s Dogma have been very successful for Netflix, but this Terminator project will be humongous.

Not only will it be a treat for the Anime fans, but the fans of the original franchise will also be looking forward to it. Netflix has taken Production I.G onboard, one of the most popular Japanese Anime production enterprises, onboard for this web series.

The news of this Terminator Anime web series was announced through a tweet by NX:

According to John Derderian, Netflix’s vice president of Japan and anime, said:

“Terminator is one of the most iconic sci-fi stories ever created–and has only grown more relevant to our world over time.”

He further added,

“The new animated series will explore this universe in a way that has never been done before. We can’t wait for fans to experience this amazing new chapter in the epic battle between machines and humans.”

No details regarding the storyline or plot have yet been revealed as the project is in its early stages. Netflix has also brought in Skydance for the co-production of the web series as they have produced the last two Terminator films.

The showrunner and executive producer of the series will be Mattson Tomlin. He has recently worked on Netflix projects like “Project Power” and the screenplay for Matt Reeves’ upcoming film “The Batman.”

Mattson Tomlin stated,

“Anyone who knows my writing knows I believe in taking big swings and going for the heart. “He added, “I’m honored that Netflix and Skydance have given me the opportunity to approach ‘Terminator’ in a way that breaks conventions, subverts expectations, and has real guts.”

The Terminator franchise has been quite successful and popular all around the world. To date, the franchise has had 6 installments; the last of them was “Terminator: Genisys.” This Anime web series by Netflix will be the first animated adaption for the franchise.

In a news release, Mitsuhisa Ishikawa, president, and CEO of Production I.G, said,

“I asked my long-time friend and colleague Mamoru Oshii what he thought about the idea of turning Terminator into an animated series. His response was, ‘Ishikawa, are you out of your mind?’ At that instant, I was confident we should get on board. As huge fans, our team at Production I.G is putting their heart and souls into creating this series. We hope fans will enjoy it!”
